La Vecchia and Green Papaya

A couple of weeks ago, I felt like having soft shell crabs for lunch. So I went to the Green Papaya restaurant (2401 Yonge, Nth of Eglinton). Before stepping in, I did not even think of checking the menu affixed at the front door. I was so sure that this seafood spot would have crabs (with or without shells). The fact is that there were none. Though I apologized profusely, I was nearly kicked out of the place for leaving without ordering.
I went next door, to La Vecchia. And what a nice and friendly place that is! I had their seafood risotto (cooked to perfection)and a bottle of Heineken. The meal comes with lots of fresh crusty bread and a small dish of olives. $ 20, taxes and tip included.
